Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

Last few days we have unusualy warm weather with lot of sun for this time of the fall so we (DH & me) decided to spent weekend away from home and arrived back an hour ago.Yes I was busy on Friday , but simply hadn't time to report my achievement

Two Fridays ago during FNwF I've started working on cute litlle wall hanging called Wooly sheeps and didn't do much because I didn't have matching threads. In meantime I went shoping , found some nice pearl thredas and here is  the result. Sheeps are finished (like them a lot) now I only  have to sew eight flowers on the border and start thinking about quilting.

I believe these are e two last flowers for my friendship garden quilt. I still have to make a gazzilion neutral hexies for background and put them all together, but flowers are all done.  These finished flowers are not the end of our Wednesday's meeting, I have some other hexie projects already started. More about them next week.

Autumn asks for new colours, this table topper change his status from UFO to FF. This was the last small piece in my UFO box. Finally it's time to start quilting big quilts,  some of them are waiting for 3 years now. Let's start quilting!

My plan for Friday evening was to work on this lovely wall hanging which were hanging around for  a while. The background was already finished so I've taken  my scissors and cut all pieces which took me a lot of time because some of them are  pretty small. Sewing  hearts wasn't a problem, body of the biggest  sheep  also didn't take much time but then I faced a problem. Not big, but a problem:  none of my threads match the face of big sheep. Nedless to say that I have pearl threads in many different colours, but all of them were just wrong. So my cute little sheeps went back to UFO box until I get the right thread to match them.

The night was still young and I had enough time for another project to work on. Few weeks ago I bought these tea towels planning to make them a little prettier.

Three of them were already finished, the other three got their crocheted edge on Friday evening. These tea towels are going to be a Christmas gift , don't know yet who of my friends will  get it.

I'm very pleased how I spent Friday night, sewing with friends is always a pleasure, no matter how far they might be. See you next FNWF again.
